R=ka: Our Galaxy Is Spiralling Down Into The Great Attractor's Black Hole


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Astronomers wonder about all the contridictory data concerning the time/space continuum. Tons of data flow in and makes hash of assumptions. Einstein was right, he was wrong, he was right about being wrong, actually, we have to think about our journey in time as a spiral, not a straight line. Then some things might make sense, sort of.

From the New York Times:
As Steven Weinberg of the University of Texas said, Einstein's biggest blunder was believing the cosmological constant was a blunder.

Since the 1998 discovery, astronomers have been racing to chart the history of the expansion of the universe more precisely to pin down the properties of dark energy. Observations by Dr. Riess and his colleagues with the Hubble Space Telescope two years ago have determined that the universe hit the gas pedal about five billion years ago.

Dr. Schaefer used as his mileage markers 52 gamma ray bursts, which are 100 to 1,000 times as powerful as Type 1a supernovas, and can thus be seen much farther away, or back in time. The bursts, which can be seen only from space, have been studied by satellites like the High Energy Transient Explorer, or HETE.

The most distant burst, at 12.8 billion light-years, occurred when the universe was 6 percent of its present age, Dr. Schaefer said.

His measurements put the dark energy in a controversial category named phantom energy, which if it continued unabated would rip apart the cosmos in a few billion years.
Well, we will be "ripped apart" when our little galaxy is sucked into the Great Attractor! You see, pretend we are a little bug on a wine glass. When we look at a glass, we see straight through to the other side but if we transit the exterior of the glass, it is a long journey. We can't understand how it can be curved when, from our limited view front and back, it looks pretty flat but we can see perfectly well where we were in the past and where we want to go. Thinking about our TRAVEL in time vs where we can see things today, we traveled in a vast spiral. From point A to point B. Our spiral travel is inside a mega bubble of the Big Bang. So there are two images here, the expanding balloon with all elements spiralling towards greater elements which punch ever deeper gravity pools in the fabric of the balloon.

Mother Nature absolutely loves spirals.
The logarithmic or equiangular spiral was first defined symbollically by Descartes in 1638 by the equation

r=ka

which relates the polar coordinates of any point in the spiral and expresess an exponential growth pattern. In nature it is usually associated with the growth of dead tissues forming structures, like shells of many invertebrates, corals and several horns found in mammalian species, by an accretionary process.
Ever wonder about the structure of reality? It is most marvelous. Many systems follow many laws, seems Mother Nature is a megomaniacal mathematical tinkerer. This is what "intelligent design" really means! The forms of nature repeat themselves on many levels. Hurricanes and Nautilus shells and galaxies, big and small, follow the same mathematical formula.

And if our galaxy's path through time and space left accretions like a trail, why, it wouldn't surprize me at all to see it is the same pattern a mere sea creature makes, growing progressively larger.

Mother Nature knows that simplicity creates an infinite range of effects when different materials and scales of action are applied. And She delights in this which is why we get to riddle everything out, as we learn Her many tricks, we should remember that the same things stay the same no matter how big or small. Why would the Universe "blow apart" by shooting out to nowhere when we are in a spiral down into another, greater black hole? Doesn't sound like we are going in the opposite direction, does it????

Eh?

Well, no one will listen to me. Maybe I should go back to listening to one giant black hole's B flat 5 million octaves below Middle C!
